The UK and Israel already banned flights from southern Africa countries.
It is never going to end. There is a reason why we get a new flu shot every year. There is a reason why some people with the flu shot still get the flu. Viruses mutate! They mutate all the freaking time.
I guess COVID is special because officials freak out when a new COVID mutation comes out. They vomit all the hyperbole they can to keep the sheep scared and in line.
Need proof? When the vaccines came out normalcy started to come back and politicians like Fauci went to the wayside.
All of a sudden, the dangerous Delta variant came around, forcing the politicians back to the forefront.
But now the Delta variant is no longer a concern. People are letting down their guard! They’re starting to go back to normal and not paying attention to politicians.
Fauci and politicians are on the verge of losing their celebrity status! So of course a new deadly variant has been discovered.
The World Health Organization (WHO) attended a special meeting on Friday because of the B.1.1.529 COVID variant that showed up in southern Africa. They’ll need a new name if they want to keep up the panic because that’s a mouthful. It will likely receive a Greek letter.
One scientist described the numerous mutations of this variant as “horrific” and another told the BBC “it was the worst they’d seen”:
It is also incredibly heavily mutated. Prof Tulio de Oliveira, the director of the Centre for Epidemic Response and Innovation in South Africa, said there was an “unusual constellation of mutations” and that it was “very different” to other variants that have circulated.
“This variant did surprise us, it has a big jump on evolution [and] many more mutations that we expected,” he said.
In a media briefing Prof de Oliveira said there were 50 mutations overall and more than 30 on the spike protein, which is the target of most vaccines and the key the virus uses to unlock the doorway into our body’s cells.
Zooming in even further to the receptor binding domain (that’s the part of the virus that makes first contact with our body’s cells), it has 10 mutations compared to just two for the Delta variant that swept the world.
This level of mutation has most likely come from a single patient who was unable to beat the virus.
A lot of mutation doesn’t automatically mean: bad. It is important to know what those mutations are actually doing.
Of course, they worry the vaccine will not work against this variant. Um, duh. Again, why do you think we need a flu shot every single year?
EHRMEHGERD we’re all going to die.
The BBC also had a video explaining why we keep seeing new variants of COVID. We’re not stupid. Everyone knows viruses, like everything else in the world, evolve to survive.
Must Stop ALL TRAVEL
Anyway, the UK, EU, and Israel have already halted air travel to southern Africa.
Because, you know, the lockdowns and travel bans have worked so well in the past.
German Health Minister Jens Spahn said, “The last thing we need is to bring in a new variant that will cause even more problems.”
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said, “We are currently on the verge of a state of emergency.” British Health Secretary Sajid Javid declared it’s a “huge international concern!”
The Japanese government will force Japanese nationals to isolate and quarantine for 10 days and have constant testing when they come home from Botswana, Eswatini, Namibia, Lesotho, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
In other words, this is never going to end. We all knew once everyone caved, hung onto every word from people like Fauci, and didn’t back down they would find every excuse to keep their power and relevance.
It’s a shame because when we face a virus like the ones in Outbreak and Contagion, you know, a virus that is a literal death sentence for anyone who catches it, no one will care or pay attention.DONATE
